Felting is what occupies the shepherdess’s free moments at the farm. Imagination is the only limitation when it comes to creating with fiber; the only rule set is that the object be useful (Okay, sometimes the rule is interpreted broadly).

Felting begins with roving and batting from the flock fleeces.

AVAILABLE AT PRESENT:

Roving and batting

White and pale brown 90% wool/10% tussah silk batting. At about 17 microns, it is oh so soft, and ready for nuno felting or even spinning. It’s available in 4-oz. bags for $16 plus shipping; for larger quantities contact us about price.

Batting, ~17 micron

Roving, ~ 19 microns. Moorit Merino roving mixed with about 15% cinnamon/nutmeg dyed tussah silk. $3.50/ounce.

Moorit-silk roving

Dyed roving in yellow, red, and blue–not as fine (about 23 microns), but perfect for basic felting, especially for children’s projects. These are in 2-oz. balls, for just $4 each, plus shipping. Note that this roving is not “top” (further carded to remove short fibers, which provides only the longest fibers that are easiest to spin into yarn).
